California, Oregon, Washington, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts are requiring a growing percentage of all medium- and heavy-duty trucks sold to be zero-emission starting in 2025.

CARB Formally Adopts Low-NOx Omnibus Rule
California regulators have unanimously approved a sweeping regulation that will lower oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter emissions for new trucks built beginning in 2024.
The California Air Resources Board adopted the new regulation, which will reduce NOx emissions by 90%, after a daylong public hearing Aug. 27. The new rule drew support from state air quality officials nationwide, but was opposed by some trucking industry trade groups such as American Trucking Associations, the California Trucking Association and the Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA).
